Expert Quotes:

Good," frontal offset impact; "good," side impact; "good," rear impact; Top Safety Pick
IIHS

Four stars, frontal impact; five stars, side impact
NHTSA

“Volkswagen didn’t skimp on the safety features”
MotherProof

The Jetta is especially strong with respect to occupant protection and safety features. The Jetta gets four stars from NHTSA for front-impact protection and five stars for side impacts, but it's an IIHS Top Safety Pick, with top "good" scores in frontal offset, side, and rear impact tests, along with the new roof-strength test.

Electronic stability control and anti-lock brakes are optional on the 2010 Jetta, as are front side-impact airbags, full-length curtain/head airbags, and supplemental rear side bags (they're usually not at all offered in this class).

MotherProof appreciates that the “super-strong door beams protect passengers in the event of a collision” and notes that all Jettas feature a “nifty traction control system to help with slippery roads.”

Conclusion

Among smaller sedans and wagons, the 2010 Volkswagen Jetta is one of your safest, most secure picks.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
